Well that went well didn’t it. We had a corruption in some files that caused the format to go a tad haywire. Until we get things straightened out, please enjoy this vanilla format for the “new” Yakface.com. Hopefully we’ll get things sorted out for you soon.

PS. it will take a little while for the toyguide to come back on line. Thanks for your patience.
After much deliberation, we’ve decided to choose a new “mascot” if you will for our site. Good ol’ Yak Face, in his varied forms, has served us well for these past 15 years, but we think a new direction is needed. Our name sake will be gradually phased out and replaced by another highly sought after Vintage Kenner figure – the illusive Sears Exclusive Blue Snaggletooth! The current Yakface URL (www.yakface.com) will also be replaced by a new web addresswww.bluesnaggletooth.com as will our Forums, Facebook and Twitter pages to reflect the change. We hope you like this new vision and be sure watch for even more improvements including an entire site redesign in the next few weeks!
The folks over at Action Figure Empire are spreading the word about a young Star Wars collector in need.
Eli has been diagnosed with a rare life-threatening disease called Severe Aplastic Anemia, which is a disease of the bone marrow. They are helping to lift his spirits by donating Star Wars toys to this little guy. If you’d like more information on how you can donate a Star Wars toy, please click here.
For those ever interested in becoming a marrow donor, more information can be found here.
Special thanks to forumite DarthDaddy for bringing this to our attention.
Our friends at EchoBaseForums wrap up their “Who’s Left” feature, this time taking a look at unmade figures from Return of the Jedi. Head on over for our “want list” and to read the opinions of other fan site members.
Again, we would like to thank Echo Base and David Delgado for inviting us to participate in this project.
It’s that time of year again! The annual American International Toy Fair kicks off tomorrow and we’ll be on the floor to provide you the latest news from many of the Star Wars license holders so watch for updates here and on facebook. Surprisingly, there have been relatively few product leaks so hopefully that bodes well for this being a great show!
This year we’ve revamped our photo galleries with a new interface so you be able to view all of the photos more easily. You can also go back and review our coverage of Toy Fair 2010, SDCC 2010 and Celebration V if you are so inclined.
A huge thanks to our very own Mark Minicuci for making the trek again this year to the big apple.
Our friends at EchoBaseForums have launched an interesting feature asking sites from around Star Wars fandom their opinion on who’d they like to see released from The Phantom Menace. Look for this feature to continue every friday covering all 6 films in the saga.
Thanks to David Delgado for asking us to participate in this collaborative effort.
We have teamed up with Jedi Temple Archives to provide a guest review for their ongoing Research Droids Reviews series. For our contribution, I take a look at The Saga Collection’s R4-M6 (Mace Windu’s Astromech Droid) to see how it fits into the modern era’s grand scheme of collecting. Head on over to see if you think this astromech worth tracking down if you missed it back in 2007.
A huge thanks to JTA for their generous invitation.
The holidays were good to us here at Yakface and we thought what better way to show our thanks and appreciation than to spread some of it back to you our readers! Head to our facebook page and discover how you can win a set of 3 figures from last year’s hard-to-find Toys”R”Us exclusive wave of Expanded Universe figures!
